The Sargent Memorial Library is featuring the work of local artist John Takacs. This exhibit, Arizona: Postcards from the Edges, continues Mr. Takacs’ examination of the strands of society and how they interweave or fray. Each photo in this collection of thirty-one “postcards” reveals some part of the essence of Arizona, its communities and character, its charms and challenges, its cultures and complexities and its class structures and divides. This show will be on exhibit during regular library hours through October 22, 2014.
